We are so grateful to the many volunteers across numerous Winchester community groups who helped to make the Mass Memories Road Show a wonderfully successful event. In addition to the Network, representatives from the Winchester Public Library, Winchester Historical Society, Town Archives, Winchester High School, Wright-Locke Farm, Winchester Farmer’s Market Community Hub, Jenks Center, and the Council of Aging all pitched in to plan, promote, and help the event run smoothly.
According to Carolyn Goldstein, Public History and Community Archives Manager for UMass Boston, the Winchester stop of the Mass Memories Road Show yielded 340 images and 28 videos collected for the digital archives, as well as 51 keepsake photos. These memories and images were gleaned from 175 attendees, including 135 registrants.
The materials gathered from the Road Show will be processed over the next 3-4 months and will be available for view this winter.
